The Keeper, Inc. Introduces Reusable Medical-Grade Silicone Menstrual Cup, an Environment-Friendly Alternative to Tampons and Pads

According to most estimates, the average woman uses nearly 12,000 disposable menstrual pads and/or tampons during her lifetime. While reusable menstrual cups are not yet a well-known option, they provide a viable alternative for women who care about the environment. The Keeper, Inc. now manufactures two kinds of menstrual cups: The Keeper, made of latex rubber; and The Moon Cup, made of medical-grade silicone.

As more and more women become concerned about the environment, they are turning to environment-friendly menstrual products, including reusable menstrual cups. Two such products are The Keeper and Moon Cup, both manufactured by The Keeper, Inc. ( and

A company spokeswoman for The Keeper, Inc. points out a few reasons for the product’s growing popularity: “The Keeper is made from gentle rubber, and is quite comfortable.” She adds: “On the market for nearly twenty years, The Keeper is also easy on the environment and is cost-effective. With proper care, one Keeper should last up to 10 years.”

The Keeper, Inc. has distributors all over the world, including in the British Isles, Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, France and Scandinavia. “We are proud of the entrepreneurial spirit of our distributors and are always happy to have new distributors join our company.”

Recently, some women with a latex allergy have asked that the company produce a product for them. To fill this need, The Keeper, Inc. has introduced The Moon Cup, a medical-grade silicone version of The Keeper. Like its latex rubber counterpart, The Moon Cup is FDA-approved, and comes in two sizes.

Why are so many women turning to reusable menstrual products? “We think it’s because, more and more, women are becoming concerned with the environment. They watch shows like ‘Oprah’ and ‘The Martha Stewart Show,’ that talk about how women can have a positive effect on the environment by making simple changes in the products they use.” And, she adds, according to most estimates, the average woman will use nearly 12,000 pads and/or tampons during her lifetime. “That’s quite a lot of garbage – and quite a lot of money being spent for something that is only used once and then thrown away!”

While the Moon Cup is too new to vouch for its longevity, we know that one Keeper can last up to 10 years – “with simple, proper care, of course.” Considering that one menstrual cup costs approximately $35, and that most women spend over $400 on disposable menstrual products during a 10-year time period, “that’s quite a bargain,” she says. And quite a savings for the environment, as well.)
